langley and distributed around the united states government, including the united nations, to susan rice, to the white house. there's not a chance that the cia would withhold this information from the white house or probably the united nations, our office in the united nations, either. it's just the way it works. it's a system. it's almost mechanical. it's hard to short-circuit. in addition, the cia director would be calling the white house and videoconferences, calling the national security council. i have never seen an attack on the united states that was not immediately reported to the white house. >> but you say it's amateur hour to allow ambassador rice to be sent out with the limited information and to say what she said, why? >> well, somebody dropped the ball. i mean, those situation reports should have been going to her office in new york. she should have been stopped from taking, you know, saying what she did. it's a true blunder in a case like this, as we've seen. you know, who did not get her the paper. if she did get the paper and still went out on the talk shows and said it

the very best of the united states of america. we will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. >> president obama at the rose garden. now, david axelrod and others in the administration are now saying that he was quick to label the benghazi killings an act of terror based on his wording there. keeping them honest, that was both the first and last time that he used that word in relation to this. even days later, no one in the administration even came close to that language. listen. >> it's important to know that there's an fbi investigation that has begun and will take some time to be completed. that will tell us with certainty what transpired but our current best assessment based on the information that we have at present is that in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated response to what had transpired in cairo. in cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated. >> the u.n. ambassador susan rice. two sundays ago, took ano

investigation, you have to be prudent, you're president of the united states, you can't jump to conclusions. >> i have a fair amount of sympathy. i stood on that podium at the white house in the case of attacks on our country. you have to wait until you have all the facts to speak. and you're under pressure to speak immediately. but in this case, i think there was a willful pattern in this administration of downplaying terrorist attacks against our country. it was done with the underwear bomber on the airplane. it was done with the times square bomber, and done in benghazi, attributing the violence to the video. that's where i fault the administration. i think it was a bungled response to what took place and only later after the intelligence officials made it very plain to them that they're on the wrong track, that the administration catch up on the right track. >> secretary reish -- >> if i could just say one thing before we go to the economy, i think it's much more dangerous in terms of public opinion to jump to conclusions. to say, for example, there are weapons of mass destruction in a

virginia. this is the home of the united states navy, the great norfolk naval base, home of the pentagon. what i heard him say is that shipbuilding and the use of ships is sort of going the way of horses and bayonets is the way we understood it. that's just flat not the case. we're down to 287 ships or so, anderson, right now. the quadrennial defense review says we need 346 ships. so we're already way under the number of ships and the president didn't seem to indicate that was very important. so from a readiness standpoint and i think equally important for virginia, especially hampton roads, virginia and swing states like florida, new hampshire and virginia, to lose what's estimated to be 200,000 jobs in hampton roads and around the state because of these defense cuts, $1 trillion over the next ten years, with sequestration, that's how that comment's being received in virginia, and obviously we're not very happy about it. >> just factually speaking, governor romney's comments that the navy is at its lowest point since 1916 is false. you're aware under president bush the navy was

republicans who refuse to vote for the veterans jobs bill in the united states senate? he left a whole bunch of stuff on the table he could have brought up but he absolutely should have asked him about it because it is a central issue when you talk about where we stand in this country. i simply say to ari, i know he's your guy but sometimes you don't have to spin for him when it's not necessary. >> not just on the 47% now, even on the health care thing during the debate, he's saying pre-existing conditions will be covered, but under current law, people who lose their jobs can keep their health insurance, they just, you know, for a time. that's not really what people think of when they think of a pre-existing condition. >> when he said that, my instant reaction was i don't know what's in his policy that would cover that provision. now, it's something that when republicans repeal obama care and try to replace it, they are going to have to come up with that replacement so people don't game the system -- >> was he lying or mistaken about his own policy? >> well, there is a provision in there tha
